Got it - cut and pasted the whole thread. It got down to 52 last night here in SE VA so I might cook up some chili tomorrow.

I like to cook the beef to the point where it is borderline dry - it think it soaks up the flavor a little better.

Also forgot to mention - Mrs. Mando has a huge herb garden in the yard. She has a varigated oregano that is intense and great in the chili. Every now and then I toss in some chopped Thai basil or African blue basil. The Thai is very sweet and complements the habanero and chipotle for a sweet smoky flavor. The African blue basil is borderline hot/sweet and gives the chili its own unique taste.
